Candidate Bio's

John Hejza

Having grown up in a family of hunters and fishermen, the ability to spend time with family and friends on the water, in the field, or at the range is something I hold near and dear.  I recognize proactive measures are needed if I want to continue to enjoy these activities with future generations.  I would consider it an honor to represent the members of the Detroit Chapter of SCI.  I am willing to work towards ensuring that others will have opportunities to share the same experiences that I have been able to enjoy.  I hope you will consider me for a position on the Board of Directors of the Detroit Chapter of SCI.  Thank you. 

Greg Smith

I have been involved with SCI Detroit for the past ten years.  I became involved because I strongly believe in conservation and the right to hunt.  I realized that just being a member was not enough.  During my tenure with SCI, I have served as the Detroit Chapter’s Director, Secretary and Vice President.  I am an avid hunter, primarily hunting deer, bear and elk.  My primary occupation is in the financial services industry.  Please consider me for another term on your Board of Directors.  Thank you.
